    Acrobat Reader 4 (Win95)

    Afternoon -

    Am trying to locate Acrobat Reader 4 for my Windows95, 16 mb ram computer. Adobe doesn't offer it, only an upgrade.

    Reader 5 requires more ram than that machine has.

    I've searched many sites on the web, but none is offering Reader 4 so I can then upgrade.

    Any ideas? Is there a site offering old downloads, or is it possible, if someone has it, to email it?

    Thanks for any and all input.

    BTW - many cd's include a copy of the reader so you can read their documentation. If you have a slow internet connection (reader is over 5 megs) you might want to browse some older cd's you own using windows explorer. the folder is often called reader or acrobat or occassionally abbreviated.

    Maryi -

    Thanks for your answers. I had gone to Adobe site initially and nothing for Reader 4 there.

    Good hint about the CD's! Thanks

    FYI, after visiting many, many sites, I gave ol' AOL a chance and they DID have Reader 4!

    But, your hint about CD is a great one to keep in mind. Thanks for that.

    This is why I don NOT install from the down load point. I save a copy of the download file on a Zip Floppy, and then install from it. On my laptop, I keep copies in the Utils folder with sub folder under that. I try and keep at least 2 lower versions in these folders.

    It also helps speed up a disk rebuild.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
